UE Megaboom 3 Speaker Charge Time: How Long to Reach Full Charge
According to the specs the time it takes to charge this speaker is roughly three (3) hours.
How Long it Plays on a Full Charge
On a complete charge, the UE Megaboom 3 can play for up to twenty (20) hours. But when you play it loudly, especially with extra bass, you will see somewhat shorter lasting power. We’ve seen this Bluetooth speaker run dead in around fourteen (14) hours when played at louder volumes. So to get the longest charge time from it, power saving helps a lot. Just play it only as loudly as you need to, to hear it well throughout your listening space, and you will see longer play times.
The Charge Time Gets Smaller as the Megaboom 3 Ages
If you own this speaker over several years, you may notice that the time it plays from a single charge shrinks as the speaker gets older. This is normal for devices like this one, that rely on ion lithium batteries.
But by working the battery every now and then, you can slow this charge fall off.
To exercise the battery, run it dead and charge it again every three to six months when not in use.
Also, we suggest that you not leave the speaker plugged into a charger once it has reached full charge. Right after the charging lamps completely go out, disconnect the speaker as soon as you can, to avoid overcharging it and degrading the battery.
